Are you are looking for a dentist to help improve the appearance of your smile with a beautiful set of white teeth? Consider utilizing the services of a cosmetic dentist. Although cosmetic dentistry is a form of dentistry that is elective rather than essential, some cases of treatment can also provide restorative benefits.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures. At Vetter Dental, we offer teeth whitening, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers.

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures. At our office, we do this after all plaque, tartar, and other debris are removed from each tooth. This procedure helps whiten teeth from years of teeth becoming stained from food, drinks, and personal habits such as smoking.

Dental bonding is used to improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. To make this happen, the tooth is roughened to help the bonding material stay on the tooth. Once the material is applied, the composite resin is applied and cured with an ultraviolet light, and shaped and polished to its final appearance.

If you have a chipped tooth, misshaped tooth, or a space between teeth, porcelain veneers are another option. These are thin, custom-made shells that fit over the tooth. They’re strong, long-lasting, natural-looking, and they don’t stain easily. Also, less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown or a cap with this option.

Don’t Jeopardize Your Smile

Everyone wants beautiful, white teeth. While a cosmetic dentist is required for procedures such as bonding, veneers, and dental implants, there are other ways to whiten your teeth that are less expensive than going to a cosmetic dentist. But does a cheaper product or experience have the same effect? And is it safe?

Let’s think about this. A lot of salons offer teeth whitening services now, but they typically don’t have the proper tools or equipment to fully sterilize or disinfect teeth bleaching equipment between sessions. There are also a lot of whitening products you can order online that are pretty cheap – but are they approved by the American Dental Association (ADA)? These are just a few of many mistakes people make (or don’t think about) when it comes to teeth whitening, which reiterates the fact that it is critical you talk to your expert cosmetic dentist about your options before you get started.
